Receiving osteopathic treatment during her teens for a knee injury sustained from competitive judo sparked her interest in anatomy, movement and health. This led to undertaking a 4 year Masters in Osteopathy at the British School of Osteopathy, known now as the University College of Osteopathy.
Gemma enjoys all aspects of osteopathic practice but was inspired to undertake a Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy at the world renowned Osteopathic Centre for Children after seeing the benefits treatment gave to her very premature nephew. This has led to a special interest in paediatrics, woman's health and pre and postpartum care.
Gemma enjoys attending many courses and seminars to continue to expand her knowledge of paediatrics and woman's health but also to also meet with other healthcare professionals and provide the best care for her patients.
After working in both London and Hampshire, Gemma has returned to her home county of Sussex and is enjoying being close to the beautiful South Downs once again. When not working, Gemma is happiest being in or on water, walking on the Downs and enjoying spending time with family and friends. She is a keen traveller, taking every opportunity to enjoy the UK, Europe and when possible even further afield!
Gemma is available for appointments at James Bibby & Associates and The Drive Osteopaths.
Gemma is registered with the General Osteopathic Council, which helps to regulate and develop the profession. All osteopaths are required to meet high standards of safety and competence and all hold professional indemnity insurance. She is also a member of the Institute of Osteopathy, the UK's leading professional membership organisation for osteopaths.
